Seafood Salad Recipe

What kind of crab am I using in this crab salad recipe? I am using imitation crab meat, sometimes referred to as krab or krab meat. Don’t think that even though it isn’t actual crab meat that this isn’t still actual seafood.  This is actually why many people refer to the salad as Seafood Salad.

I actually enjoyed making this recipe so much I made it into a crab salad sandwich to enjoy. My husband ate it on top of a bed of lettuce and added cherry tomatoes. However you find yourself enjoying the recipe, if you had it as a kid this will take you back to those memories. I do highly recommend the crab salad sandwich though, it was delicious!.

Its a great opening act for any seafood dinner and it makes a really good snack or appetizer.


14 ounces crab meat
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1­2 stalks celery (amount per preference), finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
1/2 teaspoon dill
salt & pepper to taste


Separate crab into individual pieces (only if compressed in package – if not, disregard) and chop into 1/2­ inch pieces; add to a medium bowl. Add remaining ingredients and gently stir until well combined. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate to store. If you don’t have any Old Bay, use a combination of celery salt and paprika.
